FMS customers currently operate worldwide, including: Afghanistan, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Belize, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, Colombia, Croatia, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Jamaica, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Morocco, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Qatar, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, USA and Venezuela.

"We now have a system which will instantly provide audible alarms via e-mail and text-enabled phones whenever a vehicle tries to enter a prohibited area, such as a pipeline right-of-way or well pad," stated Kevin Crozier, Manager of Survey and Navigation, PGS Onshore.

Over the course of the past five years, FMS has become a dominant player for Government, Military, and multinational fleets in the Energy, Construction and Shipping industries by focusing on global visibility, remote coverage and rugged system design. "When a fleet manager needs reliable GPS asset tracking when it matters most, they know FMS has got them covered," says Henley.
